Editorial Reviews

Review

Define the Relationship takes a refreshing approach to dating by shining light on the subtle pitfalls couples face today. In an entertaining, honest, and life-changing way, Jeramy and Jerusha address things such as good communication skills, how to guard emotional as well as sexual purity, and what it means to have a God-centered self. Jeramy and Jerusha Clark fill a huge vacuum in Christian resources on dating by writing this book.”
–Dr. Lori Salierno, speaker, author, and founder of Celebrate Life International

Define the Relationship is tailor-made for serious-minded, sincere young people who want to build quality long-term relationships. Loaded with examples and experience, Jeramy and Jerusha masterfully walk through how to communicate in relationships at every level–from first dates to final breakups. A valuable resource, not only for dating but also for building strong foundations for communication in marriage.”
–Paul Fleischmann, president of National Network of Youth Ministries

“Jeramy and Jerusha not only have a heart for God, they have a heart for helping young people build healthy relationships. In this helpful book, they offer tips for communication that can set any relationship on the right course. Define the Relationship helps you learn communication skills that lead to honesty, openness, and true intimacy–and that’s the way God desires our relationships to be defined.”
–Laurie Polich, speaker, author, youth ministry professor

From the Inside Flap

Ken thinks he and Becky are just having fun together. Becky is already picking out bridesmaid dresses.

Melissa has decided to break up with Tony. Tony thinks Melissa is ?the one.?

Are miscommunications like this unavoidable? What?s the best way to end a relationship?or to take it to a more serious level?

Chances are, you?ve heard of ?The Talk.? Every romantic relationship comes to the point where things need to be defined or redefined: Do we become romantically exclusive? Is our relationship ready (or not ready) to move to the next level? What are our boundaries and expectations? Is it possible to ?just be friends??

Getting all the cards on the table. Communicating openly and honestly. It sounds like a great idea, right? The tough question is, how do you communicate in a way that significantly benefits you both?and doesn?t leave you dreading those important conversations in the future?

In Define the Relationship, you?ll find everything you need to know about positively defining and redefining your current or future dating relationships. Written in light of the complexities of dating today, this long-needed resource will help you avoid painful and confusing dating dilemmas and experience instead the freedom of well-defined, spiritually grounded, and truly rewarding relationships.

Another great book from Jeremy Clak and Jerusha Clark. This book is great for couples who wants to know where they are at and going in their relationship on a monthly base. There are also great tips to communicate during those tough times in the relationship.

"Define the Relationship" holds down to earth advice that I believe will be helpful to anyone looking to navigate the dating waters with as few scars as possible. As with most dating books worth reading, you're more likely to think to yourself, "why didn't I think of that" than to be floored by truths one could never gather alone. Fortunately, it can save years of having to figure things out. The Clark's take a practical look at dating from a Christian foundation very effectively.

I am a divorced, single mom and have recently started dating again. I wondered if this book would be applicable to me and it TOTALLY is! Define the Relationship gives a completely biblically based view on all realms of dating. It has given me a whole new perspective on how dating relationships should be: from the beginning stages to the break-up or the engagement. It is written in a conversational tone with high-interest stories along the way to keep the reader interested. I could not recommend this book more. Every single should own this book!
